Solved!

usb audio

HP Recommended
290-a0036 (Slim Desktop)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This thing has AMD & Realtek Audio. It has a rear audio jack. I am trying to get audio to the usb ports. I assume it would be the Realtek, but Windows update didn't work it get new driver and I don't know what driver I might need.

 

Can someone point me to the correct location

 

Thanks

Additional info  >  Windows 10 has picked my monitor (HMDI) as the audio output. However the monitor does not have speakers !!!

Realtek audio has a jack for the speakers.

I really can't test USB audio unless I can find a driver is my first AMD based computer, so trying to find my way around. lol

Only driver I can find is from Dell, yuk ! Didn't work.

AMD audio is set to hdmi which does me no good because monitor doesn't have speakers.

The Realtek sound is set to the rear jack.

Happy cheap prices on E-Bay !!!

@Ken1943 There are two things you can do:

  1. Connect your speaker to the monitor's audio jack instead of the one on the desktop and the sound should work just fine,
  2. Or Click here to identify why the audio card/desktop audio jack isn't getting detected via simple step by step guide.

The monitor has NO audio jack or speakers. The only thing I can do is connect to the jack on the computer. My other machines were much better than this desktop. I went "cheap" and I got cheap. I will live with it.

Also, if you are having trouble navigating through the above options, it's most likely because the device is out of warranty, if yes? please send me a private message with the region you are contacting us from,
